Scholarships for Summer/Winter Study Abroad Programs in Brazil
We communicate to all interested candidates that there is a great opportunity to participate in a scholarship program offered by IBS Americas in partnership with UNIP – Universidade Paulista, in São Paulo, Brazil. UNIP is a private university interested in receiving students from all over the world, conveniently located near Paulista Avenue, one of the safest areas of the city, heart of the Latin America financial district and home of the international community in São Paulo.
Aware of the difficulties young professionals and students face when traveling abroad to study, our International Business School – IBS Americas – offers scholarships covering up to 70% of the tuition fees together with a broad travel preparation.
There has never been a better time to visit Brazil, the world’s fifth-largest country – and not just because the World Cup was help there last year and the Summer Olympics in 2016. Thanks to the growing strength of the economy, and the improved infrastructure required for the events, the country is safer and easier to travel around than ever before.
However, keep in mind the U.S. dollar (USD) is at its strongest level in years and now 35% stronger against the Brazilian currency (Real) than one year ago. Our intensive program is integrally taught in English, covering topics such as:
• Strategy & Competitiveness;
• Strategic and marketing aspects of conquering markets in low incoming countries;
• Current Economic Scenario of Brazil and other emerging countries;
• Industrial and Consumer Markets;
• Foreign Trade and Direct Investment; and
• Logistics and structure.
Together with guest speakers and company visits, students will get an introduction and basic knowledge of how to do business in Brazil and other emerging markets. Programs are offered 3 times a year, as follows:
January: 2 weeks
July or August: 3 weeks
Students interested in to transferring credits will be evaluated final project presentation, final exam, class participation and class attendance. The final grade and the attendance rate will be available on the Transcripts Report.
All Sophomore and up or graduate students, regardless of grade point average, area of study, Portuguese Language background, citizenship or residency status are eligible and encouraged to apply.
This is a great opportunity to know Brazil, one of the newest economic powers in the world, opening up new academic and professional horizons for you. Our last groups were composed of students from more than 35 different countries.
How to participate? All interested candidates should contact my assistant, Ms. Amanda Ribeiro, at firstname.lastname@example.org not later than October 4th of 2015, and you will be given an application form and all detailed information regarding the program.
I am looking forward to hearing from you!
